Just in case you thought politics was nothing more than a futile game of buffoonery, punch lines and PG-rated cheap shots, the amendment offered by Sens. Russ Decker, Mark Miller, Julie Lassa and Pat Kreitlow to a bill allowing for a Marquette University license plate shows that UW students have a valuable voice at the Capitol:
Page 3, line 8: after “less” insert “Marquette University must establish that they finally have a football team.”
Page 4, line 11: insert “any vehicle with an MU license plate must have a horn that plays “On Wisconsin.”
Page 4, line 11: Any license plate supporting Marquette University are required to have the words “UW-Marquette.”
In other news, the legislature ignored calls from UW Chancellor Biddy Martin for additional funding, citing more important issues to address.
